Together, we create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.
Make-A-Wish(r) South Dakota creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. We are on a quest to bring every eligible child's wish to life, bec ause a wish is an integral part of a child's treatment journey. Research shows children who have wishes granted can build the physical and emotional strength they need to fight a critical illness.
Headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona, Make-A-Wish is the world’s leading children’s wish-granting organization, serving children in every community in the United States and in 50 countries worldwide. Make-A-Wish South Dakota has two offices, the main office in Sioux Falls and the Black Hills office in Rapid City.
Together, generous donors, supporters, staff and volunteers across the U.S., grant a wish every 34 minutes, on average, somewhere in the country. Since 1984, Make-A-Wish South Dakota has granted more than 1,300 wishes to children in South Dakota. For more information about Make-A-Wish South Dakota, visit southdakota.wish.org.
